Flea Market Finds - LOVE

A suitable for now find - vintage Alfred Meakin Coronation tea cup and saucer.

But what I REALLY want to show you,

was $89 at the charity shop.

No, its not the jug or the big vase.
(they were my Grandmother's)

Not the Polish cut glass pear vase.

Its something that we've wallpapered.

Its something that has its own drinks cabinet.

It was pretty filthy and scratched.


But after a bit of  O'Cedar polish (thanks Ree!), it came up fine.

I can't stop gazing at it. I absolutely love it. 
Now I have somewhere to display all my finds - changing them about every now and then.
It was hidden away at the back of the charity shop just waiting for me.
This is going to have to be my find of the year I think!xx
